Product Description:
Best Of Johnny Winter
This 16-track anthology spans the first decade of albino Texas blues guitarist Johnny Winter's career, especially the early (1969-'73) Columbia albums that built his legend. While some purists have groused at his often manic precision, this collection makes a point of underscoring his impressive range as a musician. The fervent gospel-blues of "I'll Drown in My Tears" showcases Winter's vocal stylings (and is one of several tracks featuring brother and frequent sideman Edgar), then segues neatly into the spare, acoustic heat of the dobro-'n'-flute rarity "Come On in My Kitchen." But the emphasis is on Winter's showy rock star turns and the collaborations with his potent band (and fellow axeman Rick Derringer and his cohorts from the McCoys, of "Hang on Sloopy" fame) on "Rock and Roll Hoochie Koo," "Still Alive and Well," and forceful live workouts of "It's My Own Fault" and "Mean Town Blues." His original, late-'60s power trio is on display here, too, and that small, formidable outfit can't help but emphasize the debt that Stevie Ray Vaughan and many of his musical progeny owe Winter. Indeed, Winters's bassist in the trio was none other than Tommy Shannon, who would enjoy another turn in the spotlight a decade later in Vaughan's Double Trouble. If American electric blues is your gospel, this collection should be one of its cornerstones of faith. --Jerry McCulley
